Condition Surfaces are worn, pitted and scratched, but there are still traces of slip. Two finished edges and surfaces are preserved.
Description Object has a flattened, bell-shaped section and thinner, bell-shaped profile. Section features a rounded top and splayed bottom. The bottom of this bell is chipped away, but part of the lower surface remains. From this lower surface there is a knob-like protrusion which is rounded in section. The entire object appears to be a stopper, rather than a finial, since both ends are finished. The upper part seems to have been pinched before firing, offering more evidence for the stopper interpretation.
